NOGENT-SUR-SEIN, FRANCE — Soufflet Group, one of the biggest exporters of French grain, announced this week that it is nearing completion of a port facility at La Rochelle, France.

The company said the $40 million storage and loading facility will help the company increase its export capacity at the port by more than 30%.

The Chef de Baie port facility, expected to begin operations in early April, will increase the group's storage capacity at La Rochelle by half to 188,000 tonnes and raise its vessel-loading pace by more than half, according to Soufflet.

La Rochelle is France’s second-largest grain export hub after Rouen.

Soufflet Group is the biggest private buyer of cereals in Europe. Its agriculture division buys more than 4 million tonnes of cereals in France and around 1 million tonnes in other countries.
